Yesterday, H. 4703 was favorably reported out of the House Judiciary Committee. This critical self-defense legislation had no opposition and passed with a unanimous 20-0 vote. It will now move to the House floor for consideration by the full House of Representatives. Please contact your state Representative and urge him or her to support H. 4703 with no weakening amendments.
As previously reported, H. 4703, introduced by House Judiciary Chairman Greg Delleney (R-43) and strongly supported by NRA, seeks to clarify the Protection of Persons and Property Act (South Carolina’s “Castle Doctrine”) to ensure that a defendant who is denied protection from prosecution under this Act is able to immediately appeal such a denial. Once again, please be sure to contact your state Representative and urge him or her to support H. 4703 with no weakening amendments.
As always, please continue to check www.NRAILA.org and your email for alerts and action items as both pro-gun and anti-gun legislation progresses through the South Carolina Legislature.
